£7,000 grant refused

AN application by Rotherfield United Football Club for a £7,000 grant has been turned down by Sonning Common Parish Council.

The club wanted the money for pitch development but the council’s finance committee said it wanted more details, including estimates.

The committee also said the council preferred to give grants to bodies that are registered charities and able to recoup the VAT.

Last month, the club and the council were at odds over access for the emergency services to the skate park at Bishopswood sports ground off Gallowstree Road and the transfer of ownership of the skate park land from the club to the council.

The committee agreed to award £200 to South & Vale Carers.
